Mashups using the same API (1)
Google has announced some new features available for its OpenID API. As some of our readers may remember, earlier this year Google released a "Hybrid Protocol" API that combines an OpenID federated login with OAuth access authorization. The API has been enhanced with some extended Attribute Exchange fields and a pop-up user interface for the user-facing approval page.
If your app uses OAuth as a means of authentication, you are likely storing users' OAuth tokens in a database. To maintain the secrecy of these tokens, you can use encryption both in transit and at rest. This article shows how SecureDB can encrypt OAuth tokens in a matter of minutes.
If you run a website, like many of our readers, and you have an account system, you probably have problems with spam. One of the main sources of spam is users who register using disposable e-mail addresses. These can be generated by spammers programatically, using services like the Guerilla Mail API I covered previously, and used to make tons of accounts to try to get blog spam through. If this is a problem for you, the DEA Filter API can help.
